Piaggio India starts pre-booking for Aprilia SXR-160 maxi-scooter

The long wait for the Aprilia SXR160 finally draws to a close as the Italian company has launched the maxi-styled scooter in India at Rs 1.26 lakh (ex-showroom Pune). This makes the SXR160 Rs 23,000 dearer than the base model of the SR160 on which it is based.

The Aprilia SXR 160 is likely to launch by the second half of December. Unofficial bookings are open for a token amount of Rs 5,000 and production of the first batch of the SXR 160 maxi-scooters will commence soon. According to our sources, it is likely to cost around Rs 1.24 lakh (ex-showroom Chennai). More details in our exclusive report here. It will come in four colour options: red, blue, white and black. Check them out here.

 

The 160cc maxi-style scooter was scheduled to be launched in mid-2020 post its reveal at Auto Expo 2020 in February. However, its launch has been delayed due to the ongoing pandemic. It has been designed in Italy, specifically for our market.

 

The upcoming Aprilia SXR 160 is loaded with features such as an all-LED lighting system, LCD instrument cluster, and smartphone connectivity. It gets a generously sized seat and presumably, a large underseat storage too.

 

The Aprilia SXR 160 shares its powerplant with the Aprilia SR 160 BS6. This BS6-compliant fuel-injected motor makes 11PS and 11.6Nm. We expect the Aprilia SXR 160 to have a slightly different state of tune. But we wouldn’t be surprised if the scooter carried over the same tune as the SR 160 to keep costs under control.

 

The scooter rides on what appears to be 12-inch alloy wheels on both ends. Braking is via a front disc with single-channel ABS and a rear drum. Once launched, it will be a more premium, more powerful alternative to the Suzuki Burgman BS6 maxi-style scooter.
